VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Abattis Bioceuticals Corp.(the “Company” or “Abattis“) (CSE:ATT) (OTC:ATTBF) is pleased to announce the engagement (the “Engagement”) of Ocean Pacific Contractors Ltd. (“Ocean Pacific”) for construction of a purpose-built 26,000 square foot cannabis production and extraction facility (the “Facility”) on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.

The Engagement follows completion of the Company’s recent acquisition of the remaining 10% interest in Gabriola Green Farms Inc. (“Gabriola”) from CannaNUMUS Blockchain Inc., as a result of which Gabriola is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Through Gabriola, the Company is in the late stages of its application for a license to produce (the “LP”) under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations.

The Facility will be a state-of-the-art facility with proposed growing, extraction and propagation areas and a genetics lab. Under the terms of the Engagement, construction of the Facility will be completed in four stages, with estimated cost of $1.5m. On receipt of the LP, the Company will be licensed to produce and sell cannabis and cannabis derivatives.

“The engagement of experienced construction contractors for our Gabriola facility crystallizes an important step in our path towards becoming a full service cannabis company,” stated Rob Abenante, Abattis President and CEO. “Once we receive our license through Gabriola and complete construction of the Facility, we will have a large-scale platform from which to cultivate marijuana and produce and sell extracted cannabis products,” added Mr. Abenante.
